Alber Continuous Load Unit
The Continuous Load Units (CLU's) may be used with any Alber data logging and load control unit, or stand alone with the use of a Manual Control Box. Together, the two instruments create a system capable of providing a maximum range of configurations tailored to individual customer needs. Configuration and design of the resistive elements enable the user to adjust the load in small increments through the entire test system capacity.
Each CLU is housed in an aluminum enclosure with expanded metal sides and top for excellent ventilation. This enclosure is mounted on lockable, hard rubber casters for portability. The conservative rating of the load resistors and the fan cooling system keep the frame from reaching excessive temperatures.
All continuous load devices are rated in constant current, but can be used for constant power testing when used with the Alber BCT-2000 battery capacity test system. Standard units are available from 21VDC to 270VDC. Custom load units for voltages outside this range can be readily designed and manufactured.
